Meat Loaf

Grandma Pokey makes the best meat loaf. This my version of her recipe, made gluten-free and refined sugar-free. You will love this meat loaf, I promise.

2 lbs ground beef
2 eggs
1 c old-fashioned, gluten-free, rolled oats
1/2 c ketchup
2 tbsp dried minced onion
1/4 tsp cayenne seasoning
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 c ketchup + 1/2 c palm sugar = sauce

Mush up all ingredients, except the sauce, in a big mixing bowl. 

Shane does this for me if he happens to be around -- my hands freeze doing this! 
Doesn't seem to bother him. :)

Press mixture firmly and evenly into a sprayed 9x5" loaf pan. 

Bake at 350 for one hour. 

Remove from oven and drain off the excess grease. 

Pour sauce over the top and bake another 15 minutes. 

Slice and serve.

NOTE: Depending on the ketchup you use (mine is homemade and very thick), you may need to mix 1/4 cup of water into the sauce.
